I like everything about my Ranger except that it "jiggles" I've coasted in neutral and it still does it, so I'm ruling out drivetrain. Tires?

Could be that too I guess. Hope not though. The "jiggle frequency" does vary in direct proportion to speed........

Hello forum. This is my first post. Glad to be here and trust members highs and lows with the long standing ranger. Im glad to finally own a small truck after 12 years with no truck. Last one was a ford 2002 F150 w/4.2 V6 . A very nice ride but A pig on fuel!!! , my beef with the 2000 is the 2.5 replacing 8 plugs. There a tuff sell at getting them out and back in! Forum members what sparkplug should I put in for replacement. I hope to do this only a few times in my life!

Welcome to the forum. Motorcraft is what most will suggest. However, I've had good luck with both Motorcraft and Autolite platinum plugs but I have the 4.0 OHV.

Your suspension is traveling too much for the shocks you have.

Replace the shocks with longer ones and put on a limiting strap if necessary.

If you or a previous owner removed the bump stops this may cause this issue as well.

This is just a guess without knowing what modifications been done to the truck.

I got some T10 LED's for my cluster, should I change the smaller bulbs to LED too, and what size are they even?

Looks like the shock was bottomed out and bent the shaft. Topping out most likely wouldn't have done that. My friends 02 FX4 kept topping-out her 4600's (when she would play Prerunner) and it would bend the washer and shear the bushing at the top.

I'm thinking its 2WD shocks on a 4x4. The collapsed length is much much shorter on a 2WD
